The Associated Press and staff reports

HOOKSETT — Some New Hampshire drivers are starting the holiday weekend a little too fast.

Two motorcyclists are charged with reckless operation after a being clocked going 108 mph on Interstate 93 in Hooksett, and a Manchester man was cited for going 119 mph in a 55 mph zone on the Everett Turnpike in Bedford.

Luis Torres, 29, was charged with reckless driving and with using a mobile electronic device while behind the wheel of his car.

State police say the motorcyclists sped out of the Hooksett tolls heading north, weaving in and out of traffic at high speed.

A trooper monitoring traffic clocked their top speed at 108 mph before stopping the pair in Hooksett.

Kevin Blais of Nashua and James Neveu of Manchester — both 23 — are charged with reckless operation. Neveu was also charged with possession of a controlled drug.

They were released and are scheduled to be arraigned in Hooksett District Court on Nov. 4.

Torres was released on $750 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in the Merrimack District Court on Oct. 8.
